🍂ORDER FOR THANKSGIVING🍂

Canada Post Shipping Is Here!

We are so pleased to finally announce that shipping through Canada Post is now available!

 

When we first started shipping our macarons, we needed a provider that could guarantee express delivery across Canada and then the United States. Once we began expanding our gift item offerings to include non-perishable items, we were on the hunt for the most affordable shipping option available. Once the pandemic began, shipping rates sky-rocketed due to the increase in demand and our hopes of getting in with Canada Post were temporarily dashed. We kept trying and finally, we are so pleased to announced that we now have shipping available with Canada Post!

 

 

Shipping options with Canada Post tend to be more affordable which is great for you, our valued customer! If you’ve been eyeing our Cotton Candy Spirit Jersey, our Magic Mallow perfume or our line of Liquid Flavours, head on over to our shop and be sure to select one of the Canada Post shipping options available at check out.

 

We can’t wait for you to enjoy your JRC Gift Items!

July Community Initiative of the Month

For the month of July, our Community Initiative of the Month is Ronald McDonald House Charities Manitoba!

RMHC Manitoba supports the health and well-being of children by providing a “home-away-from-home” and other essential services for critically ill, chronically ill and seriously injured children and their families.

 

Ronald McDonald House Charities Manitoba is an organization that keeps families together. Ronald McDonald House is a “home-away-from-home” for rural Manitoban and out-of-province families with a child requiring treatment at a nearby hospital. The 11,000 square foot House is located on Bannatyne Avenue, only two blocks from HSC Children’s Hospital. It supports up to 14 families at a time.

 

Donations from our Community Initiative of the Month program throughout July to Ronald McDonald House Charities new house being built in Winnipeg. 40% of pediatric in-patients in Manitoba must travel 100 km or more, round-trip, to access the care they need for their sick child. The new House will increase space from 11,000 To 47,000 sq. ft. and bedrooms from 14 to 40. It will also include specialty suites for bone marrow and solid organ transplant patients.

 

Throughout the months of July and August, RMHC is also running their Champion for Families campaign! The longest stay of an RMHC Manitoba family last year was 194 days. Now, they are challenging you to pick your favourite activity, do it 194 times between July 1st – August 31st, and have fun while raising pledges online. Move a total of 194 kilometers, sing 194 songs, sell 194 handmade bracelets—the possibilities are endless! Share your experience on social media to raise awareness using the hashtag, #ChampionForFamilies194, and tag four other people to do the same!

 

A portion of sales from all cupcakes at Academy, The Forks, Island Lakes and over SkipTheDishes will be donated to RMHC throughout the month of July.  To learn more about RMHC, click here.
